About the Society





The Oxford Philippines Society (OPS) was founded by a group of Filipino students in February 2011. It started as an informal gastronomic gathering of students interested in creating linkages among Filipinos and Philippinists alike, discussing current issues and past experiences in the islands. Appreciation for Filipino cuisine fuelled its inception, and it has grown into a full-fledged society aimed at fostering awareness and appreciation of the Philippines. The OPS was initially registered as a club with Oxford University in Trinity term 2011, with 13 founding members. 






(a) To foster awareness and appreciation of The Philippines within the University;
